Sharon Van Etten is releasing her first album in almost 5 years, Remind Me Tomorrow, through Jagjaguwar on January 18th. She introduced us to the new music with the emphatic 'Comeback Kid', and now follows it up with the monolithic 'Jupiter 4'.

The new song finds Van Etten pulled back towards the melodrama of love that has made her music so compelling across her previous output. 'Jupiter 4' is as large and gorgeous as the spectral body of its title, built up from droning synths that hover across each other like an otherworldly eclipse. In this floating void is Van Etten's radiant voice, like a beam of hopeful light as she sings of humanity's deepest desire: "I’ve been waiting, waiting waiting/ my whole life for someone like you/ It’s true that everyone would like to have met/ A love so real." While the words express feelings that are classic in pop music, the whirring atmospherics and Van Etten's incomparable voice give the emotion a gravity beyond mere human connection, taking it somewhere incomprehensibly grander.

'Jupiter 4' comes with a video as stunning as the song, created by Katherine Dieckmann. The director and the singer met when Van Etten scored Dieckmann's film Strange Weather, and in each other found mutual inspiration and friendship. “I asked if she would ever want to make a music video for me," said Van Etten, "She asked what the mood would feel like and I simply said 'apocalyptic mom.' And with that - she said ‘Absolutely.'  That's why I love her so much."

Experience 'Jupiter 4' below, and read more about the creation of the video in Dieckmann's piece on The Talkhouse.
